It all depend's on how wet you would like to be.Just joking with ya Matt,I usually let my cape's drain for at least 30 minutes to an hour.The cape's will still be wet of course, but not dripping wet like they would be if you did'nt let them drain.

Take John's advice!

John's advice is good! Take the skins out of the pickle - drain for 30 minutes and shave! You want them pumped with liquids so shave them while they are plump.
